Meticulous attention to detail and the highest level of craftsmanship define The Farmhouse Residences at 23 Cheshire Street. Located on an oversized lot on a sleepy side street in central Jamaica Plain, these two new construction homes have been crafted to seamlessly meld modern amenities with classic farmhouse details and style.
23 Cheshire Street offers over 3700 sq/ft of floor area, eight rooms including 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, dramatic spaces and a timeless design that have become the developer’s benchmark.
First floor highlights include beadboard ceilings and hickory flooring, an open floor plan living room and kitchen with classic inset cabinetry, Italian marble countertops, professional-grade appliances and bold lighting choices. This floor also offers a half bath with brick flooring and a spacious dining and sitting room with soapstone fireplace and window seating nooks, the perfect place to read away a rainy day.
A reclaimed Victorian banister leads to the second floor with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The guest bathroom has a modern flare and is adjacent to a dramatic bedroom with a 14’ barreled ceiling, an arch top window and walk-in closet. The additional two bedrooms on this floor are spacious and are configured in a “Jack and Jill” style with adjoining farmhouse bathroom, complete with a 1930’s stainless steel apothecary vanity, shiplap wallboards and classic exposed chrome shower fixtures.
The top floor is a dedicated master suite, smartly designed with two rooms and plenty of space to spread out. The esthetic is farmhouse all the way with a custom wood and wire staircase railings, 5’ barn door and period lighting. The master bathroom is clad in Cararra marble and features a free standing tub with wall-mounted controls, a distressed wood double vanity and a gorgeous custom shower. A spacious walk-in closet rounds out this level. Downstairs is an open recreation space with ample closets, which can be finished in the buyer’s choice of flooring.
Two car parking on a unique and eco-friendly stone and grass driveway, as well as a manicured exclusive use side yard complete this very special home.
23R Cheshire Street is simply one of the most amazing homes in all of Jamaica Plain, combining over 4000 sq/ft of floor area with magazine quality interior spaces, lush outside spaces and its own private carriage house studio!
A gorgeous fir entry door leads into an open floorplan featuring wide plank hickory flooring, double crown moldings and beadboard ceilings. The kitchen is stunning with professional-grade appliances, hardwood inset cabinetry painted in period colors, a 9’ seating island and a cherry pantry. The dining room is spacious and opens to the fireplaced living room with a wall of French doors leading to a rear deck and yard. This floor also has a half bath with brick floor and repurposed dresser with curved drawers which doubles as a vanity.
Upstairs is a guest wing/second master suite as well as two “Jack and Jill” bedrooms with adjoining bathroom. The guest wing/second master suite is spacious and has a walk in closet and a period appropriate bath with a soaking tub and tile by Anne Sacks. The “Jack and Jill” bedrooms are also spacious, each with double closets and an adjoining bathroom with ship lap wallboards, a stainless steel vanity with marble top and subway tile surround.
The top floor is a dedicated master suite. The bedroom is spacious and has vaulted ceilings, tons of windows and is configured for both sleeping and lounging. The bathroom is amazing. It has custom Italian marble tilework, a double-ended freestanding tub with crystal chandelier above, a spacious shower with frameless glass door and a modern 8’ vanity with double sinks.
Downstairs is a recreation space with ample closets and tall ceilings, which can be finished in the buyer’s choice of flooring.
Outside, there is a huge grassy yard, as well as a large stone patio offering access to both the house and the residence’s private carriage house studio. The studio is a dramatic open space with a tall cottage paneled ceiling, a kitchenette, beautiful porcelain wood-look flooring, exposed ductwork, closet space and a large open area, perfect as an office or entertaining space.
